The Monkey Tree by Stephanie

Hello Bloggers

Today we have a unique layout from Stephanie & she explains:

'I love this photo of my grandson playing on a maple tree and I thought the colors of the tree would go perfectly with the reds in the “Ode to a Summer’s Day” collection. I used the “Summer's Day” as my background paper. The next layer is a piece of light green cardstock which I punched the corners on.  I then used one of the pretty square doilies from Meg’s Garden and the final two paper layers were a “Summer's Day” and a “Summer's Dance”.'

I took a piece of cheese cloth from my stash and sprayed it with Tattered Angels Glimmer mist in “Lily Pad” and then dried it with my heat gun. I decided where I wanted to lay my photo and then glued the cheese cloth down running from the left side and bottom of the photo and poking some pieces underneath where the photo would be and glued my photo down. For my flower cluster I used the white meadows, burgundy/cream open paper roses, rose pink open paper roses and champagne kisses. I love the champagne kisses flowers, there are different sizes in the pack and the color is so soft, they would go perfectly on any layout with any papers! I also took a couple of the wire stems that I cut off the flowers and wound them around a thin paint brush, so when I took them off I had little curly Q’s to pop into the flower cluster. I used some alpha stickers from my stash for the title and then added a few gems to the layout to finish it off.'
